Big Deal with October Afternoon

I've been hanging on to this layout for a couple of many many weeks, I used the awesome Milk Money collection by October Afternoon. It was perfect for this picture of Danika who is now a school bus monitor. She's been waiting to have this privilege for a long time and finally this year it happened, an event that must be documented.

Now with Crate Paper

I started this layout in September when I went to the Crop and Create event but never had the time to finish it. Honestly, it was bugging me. I can't leave a layout undone. I was so happy to get to it over the weekend and I love how it turned out. I used the Crate Paper Notes and Things collection to create this layout.

Gossamer Blue Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gossamer Blue blog hop!!


Today the DT is coming together to share various projects created with the November kits. We hope to inspire you to create projects of your own. The November kits are beautiful, a lovely soft colour palette with a splash of purple and yellow. Of course it once again features the latest collections in the industry.  Here's a picture of the main kit, make sure to stop by Gossamer Blue to see all the kits and perks of being a club member. 


Today my layout features a mix of products from the main kit and the add ons. Since the picture is about my daughter waking up after nap time, I wanted to recreate a quilt like background. To achieve this look I used the Crate Paper and layers various pieces. To finish it off I added a lot of stitching. 



Let's keep this blog hop going, next up is Michelle, make sure to check out her beautiful work!!!
